The front of Shooting Star House, a large white building with gates.

Shooting Star House

Shooting Star House, in Hampton, first opened its doors in August 2005. Here families can access our bereavement support, counselling, therapies, drop-in sessions, sibling groups, family activities, interactive play sessions and meet with our team of family support workers. Families can also access these services at our hospice in Guildford, where we also deliver overnight care to children with life-limiting conditions.
